Sound Problems

How do you figure out whether your system takes PCI OR AGP Soundcards. It takes AGP Graphics cards and now I need a sound card but I dont know which type I need or where it goes. Many Thanks all

Sound cards are all PCI. It will go into a spare PCI slot. You will see them in a bank of 4 to 6 and they are white. If you are using an onboard sound chip you will have to disable it in bios.

How do you know if your using an on board sound card? At the moment I have no sound or speakers. The only noise I get is when i get e-mail and it makes this kind scratchy beep noise.

Hi All
I am trying to connect my Yamaha HE8 to my computer through midi and find that the port is not enabled
How do I enable this port for both a joystick and midi input
Thanks in anticipation

If you have sound output sockets on the motherboard at the back of the PC then you have on-board sound. The other way to check is to go into BIOS and look for an option to enable/disable onboard sound. If it is there, disable it before you fit the new soundcard.
